Magnetic Loop is back better than ever!

The 5 stage race will be in 2 groups, intermediate and beginners. The idea of this is to allow fast transitions after each stage and to implement the best water safety methods possible to all competitors. In order to race in the Around Magnetic Island Loop, competitors must prove themselves at a long course prior or mention other courses you have done in the past.
